from potential missile attacks from syria. this comes as russia is backtracking on yesterday's statement that the opposition might actually win there. >> syrian forces bombing rebel positions on the turkish border earlier this year. the wounded brought across to the turkish side. syrian shells have landed on turkish territory itself also causing casualties. it could be vulnerable to serbian missile fire, turkey asked to protect against any such threat, we are deploying two patriot battalions here to turkey, along with the troops that are necessary to man those batteries. so that we can help turkey had a missile defense that they may very well need in dealing with threats that come out of syria. >> the american defense secretary announcing that the u.s. was joining germany and benevolence in providing patriot missiles. does this risk raising the stakes? >> i see these as predominantly a defensive move. i think the assad regime knows it is a defensive move. they can theoretically be used to shoot down planes, this is probably not going to happen. they are far too expensive to u
of defense, 60% of those eligible were deemed unfit for military sfers. russia's military stands at around a million. >> the problem is very, very serious. many officers were fired. at the same time, new junior officers didn't appear. the result, the problem of discipline within still exists. >> nikolai faces up to two years in jail for dodging the draft, for avoiding a year in an army that wants more men according to defense experts needs serious reform and must stop the violence within. >> freezing temperatures have killed 85 people in ukraine. temperatures have plunged to as low as minus 20 degrees celsius. the government set up heater tents and thousand s of emergency shelters for the homeless. the cold snap is expected to improve. 150 flood warnings are now in place across scotland, england and wales. christmas celebrations in the philippines are muted this year. typhoon bopha killed more than 1,000 people and devastated many communities. >> a somber moment for the people. typhoon bopha killed more than 150 lives here and left virtually nothing in its wake. the only sizable building s
are not meant to destabilize the already uneasy relationship with russia as the spokesman at home urged now to join the international community in helping to ease bashar al-assad. >>shepard: thank you from the state department. that is the reporting. now the context and perspective. now to the director of the program on arab politics at the washington institute for near east policy a "american bandstand" group of scholars whose mission is to advance america's interests overseas. how big a move is this movement of chemical weapons? what does it tell us in the big picture? >>guest: it is very significant. it highlights the desperation of assad regime, the fact he is mixing the recursors of sarin gas, that is a scare tactic for us to keep us out of it, and, also, warning the people of syria he could be prepared to use these if he is brought down. >>shepard: based on what the united states has said and not said or done, what is the united states goal? >>guest: the united states does not want to be involved militarily. 40,000 dead on the ground that we know and another 40,000 missing and likely
to buildings in damascus suburbs. the obama administration is hoping that russia will goin the international community in forming a coalition against syria's president. >> we want to work with russia as we've said many times on the bases of the gene eva action group's c miewn kay. >> nato's secretary-general also echoed warnings by president obama against the use of chemical weapons by the syrian government. the president and secretary of state hillary clinton said that would be crossing a red line. >>> the federal government calls it secure communities. now a program aimed at illegal immigrants is coming under fire. the u.s. mandate that california's attorney general wants to ignore. >> it's only day two but royal baby watch is in full swing in london. when kate is expected to come home from the hospital and the welcome visit she received today. >>> our ipad app is ready to download. you can watch awful our newscasts live, plus traffic, weather and video of breaking news anytime, anywhere. >>> the state attorney general issued a bulletin to all law enforcement agencies today telling them th
or russia. u.n. secretary general was asked about the asylum question today he did not seem to favor the idea. listen. >> the united nations must not allow any impunity whoever commits gross violation of human rights must be held accountable and should be brought to justice. >> that sentiment was echoed by officials at the u.s. state department who said there has to be, quote: accountability. the counter argument to that is that perhaps anything that gets assad out of syria and stops the slaughter of civilians might be worth thinking about, harris. >> some people may be wondering what happens if in fact assad does go. we still haven't seen united opposition of all those rebels to replace him. >> we certainly have not seen anything like a united opposition. the rebels say that he they are seeking more of a unified political leadership but it is hard to come by because there are so many groups involved in pposition movement from secular democrats who began this simply as a way to gain more democracy in syria to hard line islamist and even al qaeda groups. one of those hard line groups
of the largest stockpiles in the world, they could be third after the u.s. and russia. there's not a lot of information on the exact location. options in terms of preemptively taking care of the chemical weapons are difficult. one option would be to send ground troops in. it is a hostile environment. the pentagon estimates there could be as many as 75,000 troops that would be needed to do that. another option would be to preemptively bomb but then you have dispersal of the agents and so forth. a third would try to seek some sort of property to go in and secure the site. it is a very difficult set of issues as president obama has clearly noted in the clip and has drawn a clear line on the use by the assaad regime. host: here is where syria is located in the middle east. adjacent to 11 on, i rock, and turkey. this civil war has not been going on 21 months. how has he been able to retain power? -- they are adjacent to lebanon, iraq, and turkey. guest: there have been times in the past when a bomb attack killed four members of his inner circle and people thought it could be the beginning of
clinton met yesterday with the foreign minister from russia and conor powell is live on the story for us in the middle east bureau in jerusalem. are they starting to shift what has been a very strong alliance away from syria? >> reporter: well, martha, russia along with iran have been the biggest backers of the assad regime. russia sent weapons to the syrian government. they protected the syrian government in the u.n. that does appear it could be changing. secretary of state hillary clinton met with russian foreign minister sergei lavrov yesterday in dublin and officials described it as a good meeting, a positive meeting. there seemed to be a an air of compromise in this meeting. past meetings have been hostile with very negative, with little done. both sides yelling at each other, arguing with each other. according to officials this past meeting seemed to be much more constructive. there seemed to be effort to find common ground. where that will actually lead in terms of ending the violence in syria is still very much unknown, martha. martha: boy, that is what diplomacy is all about and
international community into this game. that includes russia, which has been on the sidelines actually arming the syrian government until now, but hopefully russia, no one wants to see syria use, again it was reported in 1982 that hall fa al assad used chemical weapons on his people. our government again is reported to be moving to recognize this more unified opposition. the fact that it exists is partially a credit to secretary of state clinton, but also to egypt and other neighbors who have pushed for this to happen. its headquarters is currently in cairo, by the way. and so if this happens and if the international community focuses i think there is finally a chance of a -- not just a way for the end of this -- the assad regime to be achieved, but for a responsible government to move into its place. >> and now let me ask you, move you to the israeli/u.s. relationship, because israel has now taken one more step, first last week as we reported they took a key step in deciding to build this e-1 settlement which if they were to proceed, is a red line, i know that the british have warned them th
here in damascus. with the startling word from nato and now even president assad's staunch ally russia, that the brutal dictator's days are numbered. that's because while assad is still in control in the capital, rebels are moving closer. now, just outside in the suburbs. our bbc colleague jeremy bowen saw it first hand, in a neighborhood where assad's forces have tried to stop the rebel advance, pounding the buildings and homes with air strikes and artillery. the battle is bloody. at the regime's military hospital, there are said to be 40 wounded, treated a day. while the rebels, like this fighter who lost both feet, received treatment from a dentist. their hospital, bombed. >> the rebels have shown that they have the stomach for a fight. they've shown that they can endure pain. and they have the conviction that if they don't fight on, they'll be killed. >> reporter: bowen met some 200 of their recruits, training at an army base they said they captured. >> what do you think will happen to assad? >> killed. must be killed. >> reporter: but who exactly are these rebels? the fighter says
